Tardiness:
 
When a student arrives or leaves after participation record (role) has been taken it becomes the student’s responsibility to alert the instructor of his/her arrival or departure and confirm that the proper update has been made in the student participation record. If the instructor fails to document the arrival or departure it is the student’s fault. This has to be this way especially in the lab environment because the instructor does not keep his participation record on his person at all times. 
 
Leaving the lecture or lab early without proper notice could become a safety issue and needs to be taken very seriously. In an emergency situation each student must be accounted for. 
 
Please, out of respect for first responders, instructors and classmates who may go back into a dangerous situation to get you out, let the instructor know when you leave.
 
 Any earned non-participation time will be recorded, tallied and included in the 10% non-participation policy.
 
Each Tardy will be 1% addition of non-participation to the non-participation policy.

 

Late Work/Test Policies
 
All students are required to be present for class. However, unexpected circumstances will occur. If a student has an excused absence, death or illness in the immediate family, the student must notify the instructor of record immediately. If a test is missed, the instructor has to give permission for make up. The missed test must be made up before the next scheduled period of instruction.
 
An excused absence only allows for make up of missed assignments or test. The absence is recorded.
 
Assignments are due at the beginning of class of the set due date. Late assignments will not be accepted and a grade of “zero” will be earned for said assignment. Students who prior contacted the instructor may be considered excused.

 

Pop Tests
Can be given at any time by the instructor and are not make up items.

 

Exemptions
 
Students can be exempted from a final exam if:
 
 
A.     Attendance is perfect
 
B.     Lab portion of Course Comprehesive Final Exam is complete.
 
C.   A 90 or above average of Lecture grade and the lab Portion of Course Comprehesive Final Exam.
 

 

Cell Phone Policy
 
Cell phones may not be brought into the classroom or lab as they are unsafe and disruptive to the environment.
 
Anyone failing to adhere to this policy will be dismissed from class and issued a non-participation grade (absence) for that period of instruction.

 

Departmental Awards Ceremony/Cleanup Policy
Each student is expected to participate in the awards ceremony and cleanup activities once the date has been identified.
 
Student’s final exam grade is dependent upon their participation at these functions. One half (½) of the final exam grade for the course is participation. One half (½) of the final exam grade is completing the final exam for the course.
 
Students with unexpected circumstances can be excused by the department chair only.
 
TSTC school calendar identifies the end of the semester. Student break begins the day after.
